Environmental sustainability is increasingly important to organisations, whether for regulatory, financial or ethical reasons. Business and Environmental Sustainability looks at the environmental aspect of sustainability for all organisations pursuing competitive advantage. The book provides theoretical foundations from science, economics, policy and strategy, introduces three environmental challenges (climate change, pollution and waste) and looks at how corporate functions can address these.

This textbook provides a thorough foundation by introducing readers to the science, reasoning and theory behind environmental sustainability and then delves into how these ideas translate into principles and business models for organisations to use. Next, it covers environmental challenges from climate change, pollution and waste, and then goes on to examine the different corporate functions (from supply chain management to human resources) to illustrate how environmental sustainability is managed and put into practice in organisations. Finally, a set of integrative case studies draws everything together and enables the reader to apply various analytical tools, with the aim of understanding how companies can not only reduce their environmental footprint but can positively contribute to environmental sustainability.

Written by an award-winning lecturer, Business and Environmental Sustainability boasts a wealth of pedagogical features, including examples from a range of industries and countries, plus a companion website with slides, quiz questions and instructor material. This will be a valuable text for students of business, management and environmental sustainability and will also be suitable for broader courses on corporate responsibility and sustainability across environmental studies, political science and engineering.

"Dr. Sigrun Wagner's Business and Environmental Sustainability is a great foundational text to emphasize the importance of environmental sustainability in business studies. The text introduces science, economics, policy, and strategy to help readers understand environmental sustainability. Furthermore, the text presents the integration of environmental sustainability across the functions of a business with a focus on three grand challenges: climate change, pollution, and waste. Importantly, this is one of the first sustainable business texts to introduce strong sustainability which is critical to long-term flourishing for all of us. Dr. Wagner's text will provide a firm grounding in environmental sustainability to guide tomorrow's business leaders." - Nancy E. Landrum, Ph.D., Professor of Sustainability Management, Loyola University Chicago
